# Multiples

This topic would deal with multiples. Multiples of a number are actually the tables of a certain number. If we are talking about multiple of 2 then it is actually the tables of 2. When we have learnt table we have learnt the tables till 10 or 12 that is till 2 multiplied by 10 or 2 multiplied by 12 but actually they are infinite. We can go on finding the multiples of 2 beyond 10 or 12.

Natural numbers start from 1 and continues till infinity and all natural numbers are multiple of 1.

Multiples of any number continues till infinity that is there is no end.

The first multiple of a number is the number itself

Here are few examples illustrated on multiples:

2 × 6 = 12

2 × 7 = 14

2 × 8 = 16

2 × 9 = 18

2 × 10 = 20

2. Write down the first 5 multiples of 6

Solution:

6 × 2 = 12

6 × 3 = 18

6 × 4 = 24

6 × 5 = 30

3. Write down the third, fifth, and ninth multiple of 8

Solution:

The third multiple of 8 is 3 × 8 = 24

The fifth multiple of 8 is 5 × 8 = 40

The ninth multiple of 8 is 9 × 8 = 72

4. Write down the odd multiples of 5 till 50
